This little jewel has quite the story.
Discarded at a local dump as a rusty, unattractive, past-her-prime heap of metal, a friend of mine saw her last fall and thought of me.
What this friend didn’t know was that her text that day was an answer to a prayer.
A prayer I had specifically prayed asking God for the umpteenth time if pursuing this business was really His plan for me, was really the path I was supposed to pursue full-time.
My friend’s kind text said only these words: “I just saw this desk and thought of you.” and “It’s here right now!”
But what her words REALLY said were: “I see you. I know you. And this is why I designed you.”
It took a few months to narrow down exactly how I would breathe new life into her, and she sat in our shop patiently waiting.
But I knew all along she would be gold.
You see, gold is the color for a princess, and every now and then we have one of those days when He reminds us who we are.
Thank you, dear friend, for being my reminder last fall.
